StitchCast Studio SPECIAL EDITION: Perception Isn’t Always Reality: Part III

Youth leaders hold a public Story Circle as part of the Perception Isn’t Always Reality.

With support from the CDC Foundation, the Saint Louis Story Stitchers project Perception Isn’t Always Reality will engage Black teen and young adult artists to re-evaluate messages they may have received about COVID and vaccinations and evaluate the sources of the information. Through their own brand of urban storytelling that involves collaborative work in hip-hop music, krump dance, videography, photography, and podcasting, the artists will produce a body of work for the public to view on urban canvases, such as the sides of city buses, and listen to on the airwaves.

How has Covid-19 and the vaccine affected you and your family and friends?

Dr. Kanika Cunningham, Family Medicine, Family Care Health Center, answers questions from youth leaders and the public for this live recording at the Cabanne Branch Library, St. Louis Public Library, April 4, 2022.
